New to the game, but not taking much time to adjust. Ryder surfboards have managed to appeal to our better senses in their short but meaningful period of existence via a series of shapes well adjusted and refined for all levels of surfing. Combining quality performance shapes with high-end production techniques and technology leaves them with one of the most comprehensive ranges you are likely to come across. Rider Soft Surfboards excessive range allows surfers to surf on a variety of conventional shapes with a softer deck skin enabling minimal consequences in big shore breaks and bad waves. With shapes in Apprentice, Fish, and Mal templates we have absolutely no doubts you’ll find exactly what it is you’re looking for. Using waterproof EPS (Extruded Polystyrene) foam to reinforce their boards, the Ryder series offers durability and buoyancy like you would not expect from a soft surfboard. The EPS core is a much more compressed foam and acts accordingly, minimising flex and maximising durability in all surfboard shapes. Atop of the EPS core comes a Skintec decking in Ryder’s Mal and Fish templates. The Skintec decking offers a second layer of decking beneath the on-display decking. The Skintec works to maximise the board's life and rigidity by absorbing heavy impacts and strengthening the deck. You just won’t find a more durable board with a more durable decking than what you can find from within Ryder soft surfboards extensive range.
